Trip Information

The journey comprises of three major areas of north of Kathmandu along the border of TibetLangtang, Gosainkunda and HelambuLangtang is a narrow valley that is situated in just south of the Tibetan border. It is located between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This trek gives you an opportunity to explore villages, to climb small peaks and to view glaciers from a comfortably low elevation. You can trek to Langtang by returning to Kathmandu via the holy lakes of Gosainkunda at 4,300 m. Thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lakes during the full moon festival in August. The lake is also sacred to Buddhists. Gosaikunda is actually the largest among all the three main lakes. The other two lakes are namely Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda. Hindu myth has it that the lakes were formed when the God Shiva throwed his trident (Trisul) into the ground in order to obtain water. Thus the lakes were named after it.

Helambu valley is very famous for its natural beauty and wonderful vegetation with eye-catching views of magnificent snow-covered mountains. The region covers typical highland Sherpa villages along with beautiful rhododendron forests. This region extends from the north to Taramarang to the Gosaikunda Lake and the lower Jugal Himal . The valley is approached from Trishuli River valley.
